OK.  The commit logs all read “Imported from TARBALL”, though, so I
suppose there aren’t individual commits for the patches that can be seen
at ftp.gnu.org/pub/gnu/bash/bash-X.Y-patches, right?

Also, there’s no “Imported from ../bash-4.1.tar.gz” message even though
4.1 is the latest release.  So does the current HEAD correspond to 4.0?

TLC?

Do you mean there exists a private repository with more detailed
history?

I find it unfortunate, too, as it makes it very hard to follow
developments.

Thanks,
